Is GameStop giving away a pikachu Pokémon go card as well
I thought the same exact thing and was bummed until I took a better look at the card.
While it unfortunately doesn’t have any special stamp on it, it is a full holo card.
You can only pull a holo or a reverse holo in the set, so if you’re going to want to get your hands on one of the promos if you’re planning on a full master set.
